The governor of the Russian-appointed city of Sevastopol in Crimea announced on Saturday that air defenses had shot down a drone, in what he called Ukraine’s latest attempt to launch an attack on the port where Russia’s Black Sea Fleet is stationed.
Governor Mikhail Razvoyev wrote his remarks on the Telegram app, saying the incident occurred in prime hours of Saturday morning, the Christmas holidays for Orthodox Christians, according to Reuters.
He added, “Even the Christmas holidays weren’t a reason for these people to stop trying to attack our city.”

Ukraine has not yet claimed responsibility for the attack, nor has it confirmed in previously other similar facts.
